Read a new interview with Davey Havok (AFI
) discussing XTRMST
at Alt Press
I was extremely reticent to scream like that at all—ever. In fact, I’m not ever inspired to do it at all, except with XTRMST. Writing this record, it felt that [screaming] was the natural way to deliver those messages and those words. I imagine some people will think, “They want to play hardcore, he misses screaming.” Not at all. I have no interest in screaming except in this context. It was the message that made me want to do that.
